Please Join us at the 2014 Offering of Letters Workshop

Saturday, March 15
5301 Ponderosa Ave. NE

9:30 p.m.- Noon

Special Guests: Jasmine McBeath & Kathy Chavez, New Mexico Oxfam Action Corps


For more than 50 years, U.S. food aid has benefited more than 3 billion hungry and malnourished people around the world. While the federal government's food-aid programs do much good, smart reforms would help get more food to more people in less time—at no additional cost to U.S. taxpayers.

This year's Offering of Letters focuses on much-needed reform to U.S. food aid. Learn about the United States' role in global aid, and why reform is so critical. Then, write to your members of Congress and urge them to enact much needed reforms to our global food aid programs.

Together we can change policy and ensure continued, improved assistance to millions of hungry people around the world.  Learn More

2013 Offering of Letters

A Place at the Table 
This year's Offering of Letters will have a slight twist from previous years. We are linking our letter-writing campaign to a documentary that will be shown in movie theaters around the country That means it might come to Albuquerque (and we have big plans if it does).

We will also be signing a petition to President Barack Obama holding him to the promises he made when he was running for reelection. (We would have done the same for Gov. Mitt Romney if he had been elected).

There will be much more information to come.  In the meantime, here is a synoposis (and a link to a trailer) of the documentary A Place at the Table.

In keeping with our theme of the Circle of Protection, Rev. Kay Huggins offered a reflection based on the Book of Isaiah.
